Claudine Vassas

Claudine Vassas is an ethnologist, director of research emeritus at the CNRS, member of Centre d’anthropologie sociale, in Toulouse. She has worked mainly in European societies on the construction of religious identities (Christian, Orthodox and Jewish) by favoring what she calls "the feminine part of religion". Her career is punctuated by numerous publications approaching this question from various angles, including the most recent: Présences du féminin dans le judaïsme » (Clio, 2016, no 44), which offers an itinerary and a bibliography of her work, and the book Esther le nom voilé (2016).
